CARGO is home to a host of independent retailers including eateries, a barber, florist and a cider shop. This new concept made entirely of converted shipping containers is part of the wider retail offering at Wapping Wharf.
With a company ethos that puts sustainability at the heart of all its restaurant operations, Roots puts vegetables at the heart of its menu, switching convention to make meat dishes the side options on the menu.
The Head Chef is Rob Howell, formerly of The Pony & Trap in Chew Magna and Ondine in Edinburgh while Meg Oakley and Domhnaill Barnes also of The Pony & Trap run the Front of House operation.
This place is run by the team behind celebrated Bristol food festival Eat Drink Bristol Fashion and utilises the very best produce from the West Country. Veg small plates are at the heart of Root’s menu but it still uses amazing fish and meat from the region to create interesting side dishes. In addition there is an extensive wine list incorporating natural and biodynamic wines that bring out the best in the food.
The space also has a stunning terrace overlooking the harbour and takes reservations throughout the week.
